Butter London Nail Varnish in Prince's Plums
A knock out of a color! This was the perfect combination of modern and edgy yet still sophisticated and quite a head turner of a color. This is a gorgeous blue based purple that made me rethink wearing purple altogether. (I basically gave up any variation of purple cosmetics when I was about 13). One coat looked like a very metallic medium toned true purple (no shimmer). The color went on smoothly and I liked the wide bottle top brush for application. However, the second coat took it up a notch and gave it an almost hologram effect where I could then see various deep dark tones of inky purple as well as indigo blue depending on the light. This color is when you want to make a statement, add to a sexy edgy fashion look or just to switch from your usual dark nail color. This looked amazing on our testers with lighter brown skin who had tans (think Christina Milan) and was also stunning on very dark skins (think Grace Jones to Alek Wek). The lasting power, as with all of the other shades I’ve tried, was excellent and it stayed shiny throughout the week. It also resisted chipping very well. This is also amazing on the toes for those of you too shy to use it for a manicure – you will still be sure to have people take a double take! Even my manicurist said she was going to order some for herself she loved it so much!
